The Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

I am a HUGE Himalayan Salt Lamp fan and have 4 in my home – in fact, one of them weights at least 50 LBS! Not only do they provide a very beautiful, calming and relaxing ambiance, they also provide health benefits as well.

So What Are Himalayan Salt Lamps?

Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from large rock crystals of salt mined in Pakistan and India in the vicinity of the Himalayas. The crystals are usually orange or pink but can range from off-white to dark brown. Carved into lamps, they can be lit from within using a light bulb or candle. These give out an attractive, soothing light and have been credited with providing various health benefits.

How Do These Salt Lamps Work?

As a Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp absorbs water and particles from the air, it also takes positive ions with them. Then, when the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air, it also expels negative ions which have the opposite effect on our airways – increasing cilial activity to keep your lungs clear.

The bulb inside of the lamp heats the crystal and supports the ionizing effect. Salt itself is hygroscopic and attracts the water from the surroundings. You can often see that the salt lamp is damp or even wet, especially in more humid environments. Due to the gentle heat of the lamp, the water quickly evaporates and during the evaporation process the beneficial negative ions get created. They go on to bind with excessive positive ions (bacteria, molds and allergens all carry a positive charge) and neutralize the electronic smog in your home.

Possible Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps:

Improve Blood Flow

Particular studies have suggested that negative ions, such as those emitted by Himalayan salt lamps, can accelerate blood flow. This boost helps to improve several disorders of the vascular system and can prevent certain damage to the lungs.

Purify Air

Dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and other pollutants ruin the purity of the air we breathe, and the perfect way to neutralize it is to use Himalayan salt lamp on your room. It acts as air purifier through its ability to absorb water and evaporating them after. They attract water molecules in the air, which traps impurities in the air and leaves you with fresh, clean air: this is known as hygroscopy.

Good Vibrations

Salt has been used throughout the ages to clean energies from homes and people. You can use Salt to clear crystals, clear your body and clear your home. Because Salt Crystals vibrate at a frequency closer to the earth’s magnetic frequency known as the shuman resonance frequency they can also help bring us back in balance.

Boost Energy Levels

Positive ions deplete the body of energy, and it is believed that Himalayan salt lamps can actually do the opposite. The negative ions increase energy levels, which yields a refreshing effect similar to the feeling of rejuvenation achieved from spending time in nature.

Improve Your Breathing

Asthma and other breathing complications can be triggered by polluted, corrupted air. Salt lamps ensure that you breathe cleaner air whenever you are around them, helping to improve breathing and prevent contaminants from entering your lungs.

Regular table salt is a poison for humans. Our body can’t process it correctly which sometimes leads to Gout, Arthritis, and other ailments. Himalayan Salt is the best salt for the human body. No anti-caking agents, no preservatives and is full of the same trace minerals found in your body. That is why it works for so many symptoms (headaches, acid reflux, leg cramps) and actually aides in detoxifying. Many people with high or low BP have had their pressures normalize once they switch to Himalayan Salt.

Advocates of Himalayan salt say that it has been shown to have a wide range of health benefits, including promoting vascular and respiratory health, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, stabilizing the pH of cells, improving hydration, preventing muscle cramps, strengthening bones, promoting healthy sleep, slowing the effects of aging and even boosting libido. Consumption of Himalayan salt may also help remove heavy metals from the body.
